CVM Donor "Tree of Life" Honors Loved Ones

If you visit the CVM Animal Health Center, you may notice the giving tree on the wall near the pharmacy. The Class of 2011 designed and donated the donor tree to the College as part of their legacy and to show their appreciation and support while encouraging others to contribute to CVM programs.  The tree has leaves which can be engraved with the names of pets or people who the donor wishes to honor or memorialize. Gifts greater than $125.00 will be recognized with a leaf.  To be included on the tree, gifts must be designated to at least one of eleven particular funds that the Class of 2011 selected. The funds you can choose to support include the CARE Fund, CVM
Advancement Fund, CVM Student Externship Fund, Equine enrichment Fund, Food Animal Development Fund, Homeward Bound, Humane Ethics and Animal Welfare Support Fund, Lulu Cancer Radiation Unit, Marcia Lane Endowed Chair in Humane Ethics, Safe Haven, and the Bully Fund. The donor can select the wording for their leaf on this unique tree of life. By adding an engraved leaf to the tree for other clients and visitors to see, you create a lasting, visual expression of love and respect for your friend, family member or animal companion.
